Easter Egg Hunt at Kezar Gardens, April 1
Looking for some early Easter festivities for the family? This Sunday from 11 to 3 you can get a head start on Easter with the Easter egg hunt in Kezar Gardens, at 780 Frederick. There’ll be face painting, an Easter bunny, and, of course, some eggs. Go crazy.

Soul Rebels live at Amoeba, Sunday 4/1
The 8-piece New Orleans funk troupe performs at noon. Amoeba’s website describes Soul Rebels thusly: “They bring fresh elements to the mix – hip-hop, go-go, and reggae beats – along with some unexpected song selections, all layered on top of a hundred years of street-wise jazz tradition.” Yes, please.
Poetry Night at the Booksmith 4/2, 7:30
In case you forgot that April is national poetry month, the folks at the Booksmith remembered for you. On Monday 4/2 at 7:30, bring your favorite short-ish poem (by someone else), and be prepared to share with the group. Pireeni Sundarlingam hosts. Free.
The Milk Bar is looking for a bartender. Details here.
Likewise, the Piedmont Boutique is “accepting resumes,” according to a sign in their window.
And that’s all she wrote! Happy Friday, folks.
